Von Schweikert was in full force at CES/THE with a big room at THE showing the newish VR-7 SE ($36k) with VAC equipment. Over at CES, big '05 sensation darTZeel rocked his new preamp with the bigger VR-9 SE ($60k) speakers (pictures next page).
Strangely, the smaller VR-7s were in the larger room while the monstrously huge VR-9s were in a smaller abode. The VR-9s sport levels for bass as well as ambience tweeter so room size becomes less of an issue. And boy do they work - pretty impressive demos all around.
